About the Author
CJ Matthew grew up in an Air Force family living in military housing and on bases all over the US and around the world. All that moving around provided terrific ideas for future books, and best of all, the chance to meet real-life heroes and heroines in uniforms and flight-suits. When CJ was in junior high, her family moved to southern California from Tokyo, and she went on to spend her high school and university years living close enough to the beach to inspire her love of marine life and the Pacific Ocean. A member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Kiss of Death, and Sisters in Crime, CJ lives and writes near a lake in the woods northeast of Atlanta. When she isn’t writing, or reading romances, CJ enjoys spending time with her two grown children, their spouses, a brilliant grandson, and her feisty cat, Max. Max occasionally makes appearances on Twitter, #catsoftwitter and is currently negotiating his own column in CJ's new VIP Readers Newsletter. Schedule permitting, CJ still loves to travel. Max flatly refuses to leave home. CJ is currently writing for three series: The Colonel’s Daughters quintet is contemporary military romance. The Dolphin Shore Shifter books are paranormal shifter romance with suspense, and The Paladin Group is romantic military suspense.
